Last week, the Crios Group were delighted to be able to attend the Web Summit, an event that is referred to by Forbes as the ‘ the best technology conference on the planet’. The 2019 Web Summit took place in Lisbon across three days from the 4th-7th of November.
The Web Summit has grown significantly since it first took place in 2010 and is the most important gathering of startups in Ireland. The first event was small with just 400 attendees. Since moving from Dublin in 2015, the Web Summit has grown significantly in its new home of Lisbon.
The Web Summit kicked off on Monday evening with approximately 70,000+ attendees in total across the week. The stages and exhibitions were impressive, including extravagant set-ups for some of the biggest companies on the planet such as Google and Microsoft. Across the course of the three days, there were 1200 influential speakers including founders and CEO’s of the world’s leading start-ups and tech companies. This year, the Web Summit’s high profile speakers included EU Commissioner, Margaret Vestager and former UK Prime Minister, Tony Blair.
The attendees from the Crios Group included David Cashman (Zevas), Michael Mullan (Rigney Dolphin), Andy McKie (Covalen Solutions) and Joe Cahalane (Arise Europe). The Crios Group were present at stand E309 in Pavillion 3 where we promoted the Crios Group and how we can help grow your business across Europe. The Crios Group had very interesting conversations with a number of technology companies from around the world. Our sector is ever evolving and we are constantly seeking new ways to adapt and to embrace new technologies. Joe Cahalane commented, that the scale of the event was a wow that was matched by the energy and optimism of the startups. Our members look forward to continuing the conversations started and to supporting the growth ambitions of attending companies across Europe as they look to scale.
The Crios Group would like to thank all of the companies who supported and popped by our stand!
